Former Top Gear presenter Clarkson was suspended and then later fired by the BBC last year after a “fracas” that saw him punch Top Gear producer Oisin Tymon.

His co-presenters Hammond and May quit the show shortly after.

Replacing Clarkson on the BBC show is radio DJ Chris Evans, who will be joined by an extensive line-up of new presenters including former Friends actor Matt LeBlanc and racing driver Sabine Schmitz.

The revamped Top Gear is set to air in May, while The Grand Tour will premiere in the autumn.
